We don't know what goes on under the hood, but when people are crashing and burning all around you on the most popular freeways after cruising along just fine for a long time, and upon investigating backlink portfolio's across thousands of sites and comparing data with other major companies and webmasters that all seems to point to the same thing: "sabotage possibilities" IMO.
No one admits that they crashed because they were driving under the influence, dropped their cigarette and wasn't looking, were combing their hair or putting makeup on...
I'm positive when asked they would blame something other than their own vanity.
In my experience, "upon investigating..." means... "the first thing I saw"... and that may or may not have anything to do with what ails your domain... so the natural conclusion for the inexperienced is sabotage.
But don't ask me... ask Google... how many times have they uncovered sabotage?
I'm sure I heard them say... a couple of things you don't wish to hear... but that does not make them any less true.
I don't care if we disagree... just avoid using speculation as evidence.
